Some Trump officials are already attempting to stop an incoming Biden administration from returning to the nuclear deal.
Friedman has written 19 opinion pieces in the New York Times since June, but only two about the Mideast, where he made his reputation, and then ruined it by enthusiastically supporting Iraq war. So he has avoided the pressing issues of Israel’s annexation and Trump/Pompeo’s threats to goad Iran into a conflict in the middle of the presidential race.
News reports Mike Pompeo’s latest bellicosity toward Iran leave out the fact that Donald Trump is depending on as much as $50 million in contributions from Sheldon Adelson, who has called for the U.S. to nuke Iran.

The United States’ much ballyhooed conference in Warsaw, the purpose of which was to gather support for more pressure on Iran, is now over. This exercise in futility did not gain the so-called ‘benefits’ that President Donald Trump and his racist, jingoistic cohorts had hoped. Rather, it exposed disagreements between the U.S. and many of its allies, and worsened some of them.
